Hip arthroscopy is a keyhole surgery used to view the hip joint and treat problems related to it. It is used to repair damaged cartilage and bone. An x-ray or MRI scan is used to see if the procedure is necessary. The surgery is carried out under general anaesthesia or spinal anaesthesia. The equipment used during hip arthroscopy is known as an arthroscope. Arthroscope contains a bundle of fibre optics. The arthroscope along with tiny instruments is inserted by an orthopaedic surgeon into the joint through an incision. Diagnosis is made on the basis of images sent to the video screen and the problem is treated.
